Really? It's only Wednesday?

Ladies and Gentlemen(man?):

This week has been about 10 years long. Seriously.

I told myself I wasn't going to go to bed until 9 today. Trying to get somewhat on a school sleeping schedule. So I just wasted the last hour+ on this website. Hilarious and disgusting. Thanks Bon, for posting it!

I also was looking at baby names on babywizard. I like this site because it tells you when the name was most popular. So I looked up both the names we like for a girl and for a boy. (Not telling what they are. If you don't already know, tough.) I noticed a trend. Both the boy names were popular decades ago (1940's and 60's to be specific) and one of the girl names was most popular in 1910. But the other girl name we have chosen as a middle name is currently one of the most popular names in the world. I'm not sure I like that. I'm not one of those people who wants to name their child something crazy (like Fancy Cherry, Zip Adedoo Daub, or Abcde: pronounced Ab-se-dee) but I don't want them to have a name that 6 other kids in their class has. BTW: Those are all real names. I went to school with Zip.

What kind of crazy names have you seen? I have a couple from students that I would like to share, but don't think I should here.


  1. I knew a family growing up who named their daughters Winter, December, and Noel. The mom was Autumn.

    And I totally agree- this week has gone on forever. To me, in-service is ten times worse than a class full of kids. Teachers, like students, talk so much and ask tons of questions- but my students are way cuter! Give me kindergarten any day! haha

  2. ZIP ADEEDOO DAUB? OMG. My mother went to school with a Lemonjello and Orangejello. (Twins), and a Syphilis (pronounced sif-PHY-lis)
    No lie. She showed me the pictures.
    10 bucks if you guess what state she grew up in. LOL
